EASY VEGETABLE FRIED CAULIFLOWER RICE

There has been so much controversy over rice that many have turned to cauliflower rice because it’s a great low-carb alternative to grains.  Cauliflower offers many benefits; it’s high in vitamin C and fibre and contains many other nutrients such as Vitamin K.  Rice cauliflower is so easy to make ahead and you can freeze it so it’s ready to use when you need it!  I love this dish because it’s an easy way to incorporate any lingering vegetables you have in the fridge.  Such a healthy dish, so eat up!

Prepare cauliflower rice:

Placed washed and well dried cauliflower florets in food processor.  You may need to do this in 2 batches. Pulse until cauliflower resembles rice.

If you are not using the cauliflower rice right away, you can place it in an airtight freezer bag and store in the freezer up to 3 months.  I like putting the date on the bag.

Thaw frozen cauliflower rice in the refrigerator before using.

In a large sauté pan, sauté onion in oil for 1 minute on medium-high heat.  Add minced garlic and sauté for another minute.

Turn down heat to medium-low and add cauliflower rice and vegetables to pan.  Add rest of ingredients and stir well.  Cover with lid, keep a close eye on it and stir occasionally to avoid rice sticking to bottom of pan.  Sauté until vegetables are fork tender.
